Challenges in Residential Tree Care – Why it’s Important to Hire Professionals

Published On: April 3rd, 20242.8 min read

In the picturesque landscapes of Connecticut and New England, trees play a vital role in adding beauty and serenity to our surroundings. However, when these towering giants become a hazard, their maintenance becomes imperative to protect your property. Navigating these projects without causing damage can be daunting, so considering a professional tree services company like Arbortech is often your best bet. Here’s your expert guide to caring for trees safely and efficiently.

Understand the Risks

There are many risks involved when dealing with mature trees.  When planning a tree project, it’s important to work with someone with the experience to foresee and mitigate these risks. Trees close to your home, septic tank, or power lines pose significant threats during removal. The unpredictable nature of falling branches or the tree itself can lead to substantial property damage or personal injury. A professional tree service has the ability to control the fall of branches throughout the removal process – preventing accidental property damage.

Assess the Situation

Every tree and property in Connecticut and New England is unique, requiring a tailored approach. Consider the tree’s size, location, and condition. Are there dead branches? Is the tree leaning dangerously? A thorough assessment by a professional can highlight potential complications and determine the safest removal method.

Ensure Pruning Cuts are Done Properly

It’s not enough to know what needs to be cut—you need to know how to cut it. For example, if you are planning to trim a mature tree, it is important to consider the overall branching structure, the age of the tree, and the vitality of the limbs you plan to cut.

Once you have a plan, it is extremely important that you cut limbs in a way that does not interfere with the tree’s collar. If you cut the limb too close to the trunk, it is harder for the tree to heal and exposes it to a greater risk of pests and disease. Professional tree care services with a licensed arborist on staff can help you navigate these projects without fear of hurting your beloved trees.

Post-Removal Care

One of the biggest challenges when planning a tree project is preparing for large amounts of debris and woody material. Not many homeowners are equipped with a wood chipper or have the means to haul away large logs, so disposal can become quite a logistical challenge.

Hiring a Professional

While DIY might be tempting, the complexities and dangers of tree removal and trimming often outweigh the potential savings. Arbortech, a professional tree services company, brings expertise, equipment, and insurance to the table, ensuring a safe and efficient process. Professionals are trained to handle the unexpected and can navigate tight spaces, ensuring your property remains unscathed.

Conclusion

Tree removal in Connecticut and New England is not just about cutting down a tree; it’s about doing it safely without damaging your property. With the potential risks and complexities involved, hiring a professional tree services company like Arbortech is a wise decision. Their expertise not only ensures the safety of your property but also preserves the beauty and health of your landscape for years to come.

Remember, the grandeur of New England’s trees is best maintained with the care and expertise of professionals. Protect your property by choosing the right partners in tree removal and landscape management.

Great team and very professional, they efficiently took down some large older trees that were dying and hanging over my house and in very difficult positions while also requiring them to manage traffic, I will definitely use them again in the future

I would give 6 Stars if I could. This is the third time I've used Justin and his crew of Arbortech. He and his crew go above and beyond in the services they provide. They do all, and then some, of what I contracted them to do. His crew is personable, professional, and tidy. They left my place cleaner than when they got here. Can't say enough. Use them. You won't be disappointed.

Arbor tech and their crew were amazing!!! Not only did I not have to wait a long time to schedule the work, but they also came on time the day of. The crew were friendly, professional and helpful. They went above and beyond what I expected them to do. They even cleaned up afterwards as if they weren’t even there. The price I was quoted was reasonable and they did not charge more than was quoted. The whole experience was fantastic. I will be using them in the future. I highly recommend them! You will not be disappointed.

All aspects of our experience with Arbortech were beyond expectation (5+ stars at all levels). From the scheduling process and ongoing coordination and discussions with Lindsey to the onsite discussions with Justin, and finally with the crew while the work was being done, we couldn't be happier. They listened, they provided insight to our project while remaining very sensitive to our privacy concerns with the trimming of our pines. In an evolving world where a lot of customer care seems to have vanished, we are grateful we found a company where it seems to be a core component of their values. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

From start to finish our experience with Arbortech was wonderful! Lindsey was extremely responsive and worked with us to set up both the estimate and schedule the work. She even communicated with our neighbor to coordinate the timing as we needed to use their driveway for the job. Justin came promptly to look at our trees, explained our options in a very clear an professional way, and gave us an extremely fair estimate. The guys who came and did the work did a really great job and cleaned up everything afterwards, so we (and our neighbor) were very happy. They were also very friendly and gracious even though they were working during a crazy heat wave- they appreciated the popsicles I gave them! I highly recommend Arbortech Tree Service!
